1 Examine the graphs and the data generated in tasks 3. Based on the statistical comparisons from ‘Group task’, discuss whether the lactate and ventilatory thresholds were similar. Within this discussion use literature sources to evaluate whether this result was expected and provide a physiological explanation for this conclusion.
2.Consider the factors that result in the accumulation of lactate in the circulation. Discuss how lactate is generated in the contracting muscle and what physiological factors drive the generation of lactate. Within this discussion also discuss where and how lactate is cleared from the circulation.
Exercise physiology is a specialization within the field of kinesiology. These medical professionals study the body’s responses to physical activity as well as how the body adapts to physical activity over time
